Join us for a night of amazing beer, great food & good company with The Bruery at Clinton Hall on June 18th at 7 pm.

Savor Blue BBLs, a 15.9% Imperial Stout, that is not only sour but we brewed with delicious blueberries as well.

Drink Or Xata, a Blonde Ale brewed with rice, cinnamon & fresh vanilla beans. Close your eyes, take a sip and you’ll be drinking carbonated horchata.

Drink 13 more beers from The Bruery! Many of these are very hard to come by in NYC, so check out the full list and RSVP today!

This event is free to attend, pay as you eat and drink!

Chocolate Rain
Imperial Stout – 18%
The base beer is a select few bourbon barrels of our imperial stout that can range anywhere from 16-21% in alcohol. Once those barrels are chosen, we spend an entire day slicing fresh vanilla beans to add to those barrels along with cacao nibs that are sourced by San Francisco based TCHO chocolatier. Rich in chocolate, vanilla, oak and bourbon, it truly puts the ‘imperial’ in imperial stout.

Blue BBLs
Imperial Stout – 15.9%
In brewing, BBL is the notation for “barrel,” a unit of measurement equal to 31 gallons. A special blend of our bourbon barrel aged imperial stout with our bourbon barrel aged sour stout, plus an addition of juicy blueberries, Blue BBLs finishes with incredibly vinous tones. The acidity from the sour stout matches perfectly with the sweet malt character of the imperial stout & the fruity tannins from the berries round everything together. Notes of red wine, blueberry skins, toffee & roasted oak

Or Xata
Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer – 7.2% 11 IBUs
Horchata is a traditional, sweet, milky drink originating in Spain and Latin America that has become quite popular in Southern California, particularly with Mexican cuisine. Our take on the traditionally non-alcoholic drink is a blonde ale brewed with a heavy dosing of rice, cinnamon and fresh vanilla beans along with lactose for a litle extra creamy character. If you didn’t know better, you’d think it was carbonated horchata.

The Bruery Mischief
Belgian Golden Strong Ale – 8.5% 35 IBUs
Mischief is a hoppy Belgian-style golden strong ale. This wickedly good golden ale is fiendishly dry-hopped with American hops to add a layer of complexity and mystery to its fruity, dry Belgian-style character. Citrus and resin diabolically combine with ripe melon, pear and slight peppery spice in a precariously effervescent mixture.

Belgian Specialty Ale – 4.9% 35 IBUs
Jardinier, which is French for ?gardener,? was inspired by the fresh, sessionable beers so often found on the Belgian dinner table. Bright and flavorful with an assertive hop character, Jardinier is a perfect beer for any occasion, casual or ornate.

Loakal Red
American Amber Ale – 6.9% 35 IBUs
Loakal Red is an oak aged American red ale. A hoppy red ale at heart, we, like many other SoCal brewers, chose the citrus and floral notes of the Centennial hop to balance the light caramel sweetness of the malt. But, of course, we couldn’t leave well enough alone. So, a portion of an older batch, left to mature in new American oak barrels, is blended with the fresh dry-hopped batch. The resulting blend has notes of toffee, orange peel, crushed herbs, vanilla & freshly sawn oak.

The Bruery Tart Of Darkness
Wild Ale – 5.6%
We brewed a stout (no, not Black Tuesday, this one is only 5% abv if you can believe it), but we then decided to throw it into oak barrels…and added our special blend of souring bacterias and yeasts. The result is a perfectly tart yet awesomely dark and roasty sour stout. Not a style you see too often – and in our opinion, not a style you see often enough.

Smoking Wood – Bourbon Barrel Aged
Smoke-Flavored and Wood-Aged Beer – 13%
Brewed with beachwood and cherrywood smoked malt, and aged in rye whiskey barrels, Smoking Wood is a delicious demonstration of what wood has to offer when it comes to beer. This imperial smoked porter is brewed with a hefty amount of rye malt, contributing to a full body and light spiciness. Toasty oak, caramel and vanilla flavors balance the smokiness, contributing to an intense yet refined flavor profile.

The Bruery Oude Tart
Flanders Brown Ale/Oud Bruin – 7.5% 15 IBUs
Oude Tart is a Flemish-Style Red Ale aged in red wine barrels for 18 months. Pleasantly sour with hints of leather, dark fruit and toasty oak. 2010 World Beer Cup Gold Medal Winner. 2011 GABF Gold Medal Winner. 2012 World Beer Cup Gold Medal Winner

Melange #8
Strong Ale – 14.5%
The eighth in our Melange series of blended beers – this robust ale is a marriage of our bourbon barrel aged anniversary ale along with White Oak Sap (our bourbon barrel aged wheat wine), along with locally roasted Geisha coffee from our friends at Portola Coffee Lab.

Melange No.3
Strong Ale – 15% 35 IBUs
Melange #3 is a blend of three bourbon barrel aged strong ales. White Oak Sap, a wheat wine, our Anniversary Series old ale and our imperial Stout, Black Tuesday, join forces in this luxurious strong ale that links some of the best characteristics of each of the contributing beers. Chocolate, dark fruits, oaky vanilla and rich toffee-like character reach through the bourbon veneer for an intensely satisfying quaff.

Sour In The Rye
Sour Ale
This American Wild Rye Ale was brewed with a substantial portion of rye malt, and the spicy character of the grain asserts itself with clove and pepper in the aroma and flavor. Add in sour cherry notes from our special blend of micro-organisms and vanilla from the red wine barrels and you’ve got a mouthful!

The Bruery 6 Geese-A-Laying
Belgian Dark Strong Ale – 11.5%
6 Geese-A-Laying is the 6th beer in our “12 Days of Christmas” series, released for winter 2013/2014, and is a return to the more classic dark and toasty winter ale, following the appropriately blonde 5 Golden Rings. Brewed with cape gooseberries, this malty ale displays notes of plums, dark cherry and bright, citrus-like flavors from the namesake berries. Delicious right now, but suitable for aging up to 6 years, upon the release of 12 Drummers Drumming.

Cuivre Anniversary
Old Ale – 16.2%
This 2015 Anniversary Old Ale celebrates The Bruery’s 7th year and it is 100% ale aged in Bourbon Barrels. Cuivre translates to “Copper” and this beer will be packaged in 750ml bottles.

Trade Winds
Belgian Golden Strong Ale – 8% 25 IBUs
Our Summer seasonal, Trade Winds Tripel is a Belgian-style Golden Ale with a Southeast Asian twist. Instead of using candi sugar (typical for such a beer), we use rice in the mash to lighten the body and increase the gravity, and spice with Thai Basil. The result is an aromatic, digestible and complex beer made for a lazy summer evening.
